What is a desktop boiler?

What is a desktop water boiler?

A desktop water boiler is exactly as the name suggests – a boiler that sits on a desktop, countertop or any other surface rather than being mounted to the wall. This provides more flexibility regarding where you place it. Desktop boilers also hold significantly more water than wall-mounted machines, making them ideal for larger businesses with more staff. 

The wide range of options on the market, with many different styles and functions, means they’re a versatile choice for any work environment. At Fresh Opportunities, we supply state-of-the-art desktop water boilers in Nottingham, installing them in workplaces throughout the area. 

What are the benefits of a desktop boiler? 

Now you know what is a desktop boiler, you may be wondering why you should use one. Desktop boilers are becoming increasingly popular in a variety of workplaces. Whilst the humble kettle was once the go-to solution for boiling water for staff tea breaks, hot water dispensers like desktop boilers are gradually replacing them. 

Mains-fed and fitted with filters, they ensure a constant stream of great-tasting water. This can provide big benefits for business, increasing efficiency and productivity significantly. Keep reading to learn the benefits of desktop boilers.  

Mains-fed desktop boilersWhat are the benefits of having an office hot water boiler

The newest desktop boilers are mains-fed, which means there’s no need to constantly fill them with water as cheaper freestanding models. This makes them much more convenient and efficient. Our desktop boilers hold up to 11 litres, with larger capacities also available. 

Hot water on tap

Providing staff with access to instant hot water can make your business run much more efficiently. Cups of tea and coffee keep many people fuelled at work throughout the day, helping to keep them focussed when at their desks. However, making those hot drinks using a kettle can waste a lot of working time, damaging your company’s productivity levels. When staff have hot water on tap, they can make their drinks much more quickly, allowing them to return to work sooner.  

Energy efficiency

Boiling a kettle not only wastes a lot of time but energy too. They waste energy when overused too as they lose heat during the boiling process. Hot water dispensers like desktop boilers are much more energy-efficient, wasting as little as possible. If you’re a business looking to operate in a more sustainable manner and keep your energy costs low, a desktop boiler can be a great investment. 

One of the top desktop boilers on the market, the Lincat EB3FX has a raft of eco-friendly features. Eco Mode reduces the volume of boiling water by up to 50% to save energy and money, whilst Predictive Eco Mode learns how you use the machine, switching to Eco Mode automatically during quiet periods. The 7-day timer switches it off at night and at weekends. 

Minimal limescale

One benefit of desktop boilers that you may not have considered is that they are much less likely to develop limescale. If you look inside a work kettle, you’re likely to find white, chalky residue – this is limescale that has built up over time. Eventually, this limescale can come away from the bottom of the kettle, falling into your drinks. This isn’t ideal, especially if you’re serving up a tea or coffee to an important client! The good news is that most hot water dispensers have limescale reduction filters and cleaning programmes that work to remove limescale before it becomes a major problem.
